Big Ideas: The value of money is consistent. There is a relationship between place value and money. Coins and bills are monetary units that may be measured. Second grade students are familiar with the Base Ten system and understand how to trade or compose a ten when they have ten units or ten ones. Students also understand that ten rods or ten tens may be traded for a flat or one hundred. The task in this lesson links this important place value concept to money using pennies, dimes, and dollar bills. Vocabulary: dime, penny, dollar, place value Special Materials: place value boards and place value tools (units, rods, flats) pennies and dimes dice sets of number cards 0 -9
